My Uncle loved his country, ALL his family and his Brothers in Arms. He was strong yet gentle, patient and funny as can be. He would chase the girls around the house and up the stairs with shaving cream on his face saying he was gonna kiss us we would lock ourselves in the bathroom and he would just laugh , and the boys he was always chasing them and gonna get their ears. The boxing gloves and playing guitar and going out to the acreage these were things he truly enjoyed sharing with us. He took me out and taught me to drive. He was truly one of a kind. He and my Aunt were always there for my family.
